Taking the Next Steps

The Watershed Association’s Project for Municipal Excellence builds partnerships with municipal leaders to support proactive municipal planning. Working with local leaders we assess a municipality’s land use, zoning and other ordinances and create a tailored “Taking the Next Steps” report with recommendations to strengthen local laws, policies and actions to protect clean water and the environment.
